Information Technology Certifications Taxonomy

In the fast-paced world of technology, where new advancements and skills emerge regularly, the number of IT certifications is growing constantly. The need for certified people is also growing constantly. Without a clear way to find people with the needed skills and certifications, organizations can find themselves in an extremely inefficient loop that may even include hiring outside help when there may be employees who already have those same needed certifications!

Clearly, these inefficiencies can harm your business, but what is the solution? One such answer lies in the WAND Information Technology Certifications Taxonomy. This taxonomy provides a metadata model which can be used to organize all of your employee’s IT certifications and skills in one central place. Gone will be the days of hiring outside help when the skills are already locally available! As with all our taxonomies, this strong foundation metadata model can be customized to include additional terms relating to your specific needs or industry.

This taxonomy contains 4,693 Terms and 2,079 Synonyms. Top-level terms include:

• (ISC) ² Certifications (11)
• Adobe Certifications (156)
• Cisco Certifications (107)
• IBM Certifications (827)
• ICCP Certifications (19)
• Informatica Certifications (35)
• Microsoft Certifications (278)
• Nutanix Certifications (20)
• OpenText Certifications (63)
• Oracle Certifications (925)
• Red Hat Certifications (83)
• SAP Certifications (651)
• SAS Certifications (83)
• VMWare Certifications and Badges (303)
• Zscaler Certifications (21)

While one taxonomy is good, multiple taxonomies to address other areas of your business is better! Check out some of our curated recommendations for other taxonomies that pair well with the
